Six years have passed and here is an anniversary blog where you haven’t just come home from traveling, we haven’t adopted another dog, and we haven’t moved to another state! But wait…you WILL be traveling soon and we did just move into a new house. So, I guess that can only mean I’ll be adopting a puppy over Fourth of July weekend while you’re gone! (Mwahahaha!)
Six years have passed in the blink of an eye and it has been the most satisfying, most unbelievable, and incomprehensibly joyous blur I have ever experienced. And I know in my heart that in six more years, that blur of time will be filled with everything I could have dreamed of because I’ll have you there with me (and then six years after that, and six years after that…but, hey, let’s not rush it, right? Ha). In the past year we’ve gone to Hawaii again and witnessed the most breathtaking sights together, we’ve been to Arrowhead on Christmas Day to see your beloved Chiefs, and we went to Boston to see the Red Sox on my birthday (and somehow found a cab after the piano bar to get us back to the hotel). But, it’s not just about the big events and big trips. It’s always been about those smaller moments that we get to experience every day. It’s in those moments that I know I’m with the one person I will always need in my life.
Six years have passed and I think we have finally found roots in a brand new home. A place we’ve been yearning for and a place we can call our own. A home that is complete because we’re together in it (plus the fur babies, but I won’t ramble on about them seeing as how they get spoiled too much as it is). I have never been more proud of us then I have been recently. We were able to find and acquire what I would consider our dream home (and let’s be real, if it wasn’t for your incredible budgeting skills, it wouldn’t have happened). I have had and will always have you to thank for it. My rock. My steadfast partner. My beautiful wife.
Six years have passed and you are the one who truly knows me. You appreciate my ridiculousness and encourage my creativity (most times with a much deserved eye roll). You are never a person in my life who feels the need to corral me (although a nudge to help me focus is always appreciated). And I feel the same towards you. I never want to limit you in any way. I love your ideas and I love watching you as you talk to me about a topic that mentally energizes you. Seeing you light up over spreadsheets or organizational techniques is cute and endearing in the nerdiest way possible. Much like when you listen to me ramble on about a comic book movie and how certain characters are represented correctly and whether or not their origin/costume/powers were correct…but I digress.
Six years have passed and I still get butterflies when I look at you across the room. Every morning I wake up next to you, it’s like falling in love with you all over again. You are my best friend and confidant and I still get giddy when I call you my wife. I love being around you and in those moments where we are apart, I long for us to be back together again.
Six years have passed and I treasure every moment. You are my lifeline and the half that makes me whole. I would absolutely be less without you and for that, I am forever yours.
Happy Anniversary, babycakes.
I love you to the moon and back.
